Since a young age, my passion has always been to write, write and write some more. After having spent most of my working life switching from one job to another, I decided to make a life changing decision and go to university as a mature student and build a career as a writer.
Previously. my jobs consisted of being either a Baker or Engineer, so I was surprised when following university I managed to secure a number of articles in a national weekly newspaper. From then on I spent my time honing my journalistic skills at a major national daily broadsheet newspaper and major magazine publishing house.
I later went on to work for Mens Fitness Magazine and then two leading industry magazines entitled Print and Publishing. In addition, I spent a number of years writing for numerous other publications as a freelance journalist, until that is, the economic downturn stepped in and closed the publication I worked at. I continue to work in communications, but have never as yet had the courage to step up and make the commitment write a book; well that was until now.
My first piece of work is entitled The Reluctant Mr Mum and is based around the years I spent retraining, which resulted in my wife and I swapping roles, and me becoming a full time househusband. it was a strange and tough time for me, as I was a young dad and househusbands were a rarity. But that's enough about the past.
Likes Interests and Inspirations
Recently I have discovered podcasts, and since then my whole world has been turned upside down. My key loves in regards to podcasts have been and still are the BBC World Book Club, iTunes Meet the Author UK and USA series and another authors related casts.
These podcasts, allow me to listening to famous published authors and how they struggled against adversity to have their work published. This has made me aware of how hard it can be to secure a publishing deal, nevertheless, I have always been a person who pushes myself to my limits. This, if I have to be honest, it's this characteristic that has been the driving force that keeps me focussed, motivated and pushing past any self-doubt.
I hope you enjoyed learning a little bit about me, and now I hope you enjoy the rest of the site.
